I've been digging on elance, freelancer, odesk, etc and it never ceases to amaze me. People are posting jobs like "need 1,000 or more daily visitors to my website. All visitors must be unique. No bots. All from different locations. I will monitor IP addresses... Will pay $20"
Or $50. Or $100.
And the amazing part is... they get a ton of bids. What am I missing? I would love to have 1000+ visitors -- but I know it takes tons of articles, links, and TIME. Time that is worth far more than $20!
Is there really a "push-button" traffic building technique that all these freelancers know that they can deliver 1000+ uniques in the time it takes to watch Wheel of Fortune?
And likewise, why are they so eager to make $1.50 per article written -- which probably equates to 1/5th of minimum wage.
I'm sure there's a market otherwise the freelance sites wouldn't be crawling with these opportunities. And if there is such a quick way to build traffic, I would love to know.
